Good therapy focuses on helping people overcome obstacles to living a productive and fulfilling life -- whether in relationships, work, or creative self-expression. As a psychotherapist in practice for 25+ years, my aim is to create an environment where patients can learn about themselves, grow, and, most important, change. My work has been guided by my social work background and psychoanalytic training, and has been deeply influenced by my connection to dance and the arts. I work with people of all ages and backgrounds who struggle with anxiety, depression, personality problems, bereavement, life-threatening illnesses, and family/relationship issues.

"Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of up and downs. It's a journey of discovery - there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair"- Rick Warren. We all struggle with past or present situations that can get in the way of us living our lives wholeheartedly and that have an impact on the connection with oneself and others. Whenever you are going through a difficult time and you are confused about what is your next step, connecting with a trained therapist can be very helpful.

While I have extensive experience treating adults and adolescents of all ages, many patients I see in my practice are in their 20’s-30's. Often they have experienced significant trauma in their lives that has resulted in intense feelings of depression and anxiety. Often, there is disruption and disappointment in relationships. This work can be challenging in ways we cannot always predict, so it is important that the therapist and patient together create a safe space in which to work that supports increasing awareness. I believe this can only be achieved when people are making progress in real-time towards more fulfilling lives.

My background and experience are quite varied, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and neuropsychological perspectives. This allows me to approach each situation with a unique focus on the need of the individual or individuals involved, and to provide treatment tailored to those needs (rather than to narrow conceptualization on my part of what psychotherapy 'is'). I also frequently draw upon the practice of meditation in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, learning issues, impulsivity, addiction, and so on. My commitment is to helping people gain both self-understanding and the ability to make substantive changes in behavior.
